Productivity Tools: Using Tailwind to Handle Pinterest Scheduling


I am a slow adopter of technologies. I tend to watch things for a while… try them… see if they work and actually add efficiencies to my life. I was interested in Tailwind because I saw Pinterest bringing traffic into my website.  Some of my friends were driving 90% of their website traffic using Pinterest.

As I started looking into how Pinterest traffic gets built, I realized that traffic won’t start coming unless you continually feeding Pinterest.  Pinterest needs pins so those get pinned, so those get repinned, so those get repinned, etc. You have to start feeding the monster before it will start working for you. Then you have to keep feeding the monster. It doesn’t just eat at certain times.  It eats all the time. Randomly. Whenever people open their phones and decide to browse that app.

I don’t have time to feed monsters.

I barely have time to feed my own four little human monsters.

This is where Tailwind comes in. The trial was free (which was good, I needed a minute to figure it out).

Then I realized that Tailwind actually adds time back to my life.

Once a week, I have a time blocked out on my calendar to schedule all of my Pinterest posts. Tailwind works all week to make sure that Pinterest has posts flowing.  As long as I stay on top of my calendar, Tailwind stays on top of the content.  It’s that simple.

The Tailwind team put together some great instructional videos on their website that will show you how to schedule your posts. After I’d clicked through the process a few times, it was easily understandable and the rest of the interface became more intuitive. My teenagers could do this task for me each week.  As long as the person doing the scheduling understands how to organize the content, they can get the job done. The goal is simply to keep the content flowing.

Tailwind is the perfect tool for busy people who need to get Pinterest posting done but can’t spend a lot of time focusing on each individual pin. Tailwind is free for a trial period. The how-to videos will get you started quickly. Watch the videos. Schedule your first few weeks of pins. Then sit back and watch your stats. It works.
